How To Wear Culottes This Summer

I am sure by now you have seen them everywhere – on runways, in magazines, on celebrities and fashion bloggers. Yes, the culottes are here, but they can be just a little bit confusing for the regular girl. The question is, can anyone wear them and of course HOW to wear them?

Actually wearing culottes  is easier then you think, you just have to keep few things in mind. Fit and proportion are key. You want to look taller and slimmer, so make sure you don’t cut your body at the wrong places. Pair with something equal in volume, a crop top or a short jacket works perfectly. Stay away from wide long jackets or tops. For a complete look pick high shoes, this is an extra step to elongating your body.

Presenting  two easy and  very stylish looks for you. The first one is for the girls in their 20’s and the second for the girls 30’s and up.

The Best Espadrilles To Wear This Summer

If there is one shoe style you need to own this summer its definitely the espadrille. We all had  a pair  at some point in our lives. I remember my first one very vividly – bright red slip-ons – and at that time, I felt like the most fashionable girl on the block.

The story of this iconic shoe goes back to the 13th century in Spain and it’s popularity progressively grew through the years. The big  recognition as a fashion staple came  in the early 20th century when many movie stars and celebrities were photographed wearing them. From that point  the espadrille  became a true must have and a summer staple with a very strong presence in fashion in  the decades that  followed.

This summer we are experience one of the most exiting revivals of this iconic shoe. The styles are reinvented and reimagined and once classic black and nude colors are now replaced with  bright bold hues, prints and embellishments.

These exiting styles are now  easy to wear  with your favorite summer dresses, ankle pants or shorts.
